    Hi
    Don't know if anyone still following this series but I'm hooked!

    Keep seeing them using the kettle bell weights - they keep saying its one of the best form of fat burning!?

    Anyone got any ideas as it actual looks like quite a inexpensive form of exercise ?

    I dont know what weights they using but I remember her saying last week that 30 mins of doing the squat thrusts she expected them to burn something silly like 800 cals!!! :D

    Don't quote me on that but am sure it was around that mark and thats an amazing amount to burn in that time!

    Googled them and they advise women to use 8 kgs??

    mnnn , I thought they were great when I saw them last series, and yes 30 mins of squat thrusts is brilliant to burn that many calories, but seriously , I think you'd need to be marine to do 30 mins straight.
    Just watching them makes me think of knee replacements.

    And Jamie needs a good telling off from Angie, not a coaxing did you pretend to pass out, a proper , kick up the ar*e, specially when people get voted off who are genuinely wanting to be there.:mad::mad:
